After picking up a highly significant victory at Stirling University last Sunday, Motherwell could take another big step away from the foot of the SWPL1 table when they face Forfar Farmington at Ravenscraig on Sunday.
Taking all three points at Ochilview lifted the women of steel seven points ahead of Stirling, who currently occupy bottom spot.
Three points on Sunday would take Donald Jennow’s sides advantage on Farmington in second bottom to the same tally.
‘Well will be boosted by the return of skipper Kerry Montgomery from suspension and the midfielder will be determined to lead the side to their first victory of the season at Ravenscraig.
Kick-off is at 2:30pm.
Forfar Farmington will visit North Lanarkshire on Sunday afternoon determined to record their second victory of the season over Motherwell.
It’s been a difficult campaign so far for Stevie Baxter’s side, with the 3-2 success over ‘Well back in February their only win from their opening eight league fixtures.
They currently sit second bottom in SWPL1, three points above Stirling University.
Their currently situation represents drastically contrasting campaign to the one they enjoyed last season – in which they narrowly missed out on a top four finish by just three points.
Despite their current struggles, Forfar are a team that carry a threat and their performance in last week’s narrow 4-3 defeat to Celtic serves as a timely reminder of their abilities.
Motherwell: SWPL1 – sixth – eight points
Forfar Farmington: SWPL1 – seventh – four points
WHAT THEY SAID
Motherwell head coach Donald Jennow hopes his side can build on a big three points when Forfar Farmington visit Ravenscraig.
A dramatic encounter earlier in the season finished 3-2 for the hosts at Station Park and Jennow is anticipating similar excitement when the two sides meet again on Sunday.
“Personally I’d settle for a drab game with a better result than our last fixture with Forfar,” he said.
“Though with both teams scoring goals right now I think that’s unlikely.
“Forfar have a knack for keeping themselves in games because they carry a goal threat and put teams under pressure.
“We will have to defend well and make sure we do the basics consistently.”
Claire Adams is targeting victory on Sunday to put to an end Mothwrwell’s wait for a win at Ravenscraig.
The women of steel have drawn one and lost two of their three fixtures so far at the indoor venue this season.
“It’s disappointing not to have picked up a win at Ravenscraig so far this season,” Adams said.
“Forfar will be a very competitive game on Sunday so it is important for us to play the best we can to try pick up that first home win.”
